Janae the Widow.

My go to after school snack is toast with jam and a fried egg.  Weird combo but you are not allowed to say that it is gross until you try it.

Just as I was telling Billy that I had completely perfected the drippy egg….. splat.  I guess it was a little too drippy and ended all over my cargo pants (yes, I know that cargo pants are probably out of style but I don’t care because they are so comfortable).   Tupperware lids as a plate is how the classy people eat these days, I saw Kate Middleton doing it the other day in a magazine.

I was not mad because I made my pants dirty and they will probably permanently smell like eggs but I was really upset that I lost my favorite part of the whole concoction.  So what does an optimist do in such a bad situation, make another and do everything in their power to not let any drippiness escape:)

Somehow, I tore myself from the couch and went and taught spin, here is the latest playlist-

I know I have complained about this 43 times already but Billy is CRAZY busy this semester.  Between a full-time semester at BYU as an Electrical Engineer major and a LSAT class that steals 30 hours a week from our hang out time- I feel like I am a new widower.

Thank goodness Ash has taken over for Billy during this busy time.  Just throwing it out there….anyone that wants to hang out with ashley and I, we are quite free:)  Also, Monday and Wednesday nights work best…..we could go to yoga or for fro-yo or watch Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movies followed by watching Mean Girls while eating spoons of pb dipped into chocolate chips.  You name it, I am there.

I need to stop putting up these pictures, please forgive me for making you covet my bowls of goodness.  Let me just say that the mango in there was the PERFECT ripeness and I considered going back for a second bowl of pure mangoes.

Dinner after dessert- why not?  I am rebellious and my mom only sets a few rules for me now that I am 25.

Using my chef skills, after school I looked into the fridge and threw everything that looked like it was on its last leg into the crock pot.  Potatoes, celery, carrots and chicken breasts with salsa.

IMG 5813

Billy loved it too and I think that it means that maybe he will skip his next LSAT class to party with me but then he will remember that I am a grandma and would fall asleep by 8 o’clock anyways so it would just be worthless to stay home.

——————————————————————————-

If you are in a relationship right now who is the busier one?

-Usually I would say we are equally busy but now I feel like a lazy bum compared to all he is doing.  Maybe I should get a part time job but I think instead I will just add a new TV show to be add to the list of addictions.

What is your FAVORITE way to eat eggs?  What do you put on your eggs?

-I LOVE BIlly’s FROACHED method but I also just like to fry it up with a barely cooked yolk.   Try the jam combo, okay maybe don’t because I want us to still be friends but I do love me 6 tbs of ketchup per egg when I don’t eat them with jam.

Any new FAVORITE songs for me to add to my spin/workout playlists?

-My students are getting sick of me asking them what is cool to listen to these days, I need your help.

What is your after school/work snack lately?

Running Ricig May 5, 2011 at 6:50 am

Mary Kate and Ashley movies? Heck yes, count me in. I have Holiday in the Sun on dvd…something that Mike loves making fun of me for.

Mike and I are pretty much the same amount of busy, luckily.

I will eat eggs anyway I can. They are delicious no matter what. Though, deviled eggs are phenomenal.

love your play list! :) you could add some of britney spears' new stuff (it has a great beat) or maybe some more lady gaga.

i'm definitely the busier one in my relationship. i'm a chemistry major, president of an on campus club, have been working on a research project, and have been trying to get in my work outs. i'm not sure what to do with myself now that it's summer!

i feel like 'sam i am' when it comes to eggs! i'll eat them in a car, in a bar, in a plane, in a train, & on a yacht when i'm hot.
oddly though, i hate hollandaise (?) sauce…so eggs benedict turns into egg on an english muffin, 86 the canadian bacon as well. and that is my favorite way to eat them. well, it's a tied with "in a bowl of grits with runny yolk". yum!
and i've mastered the art of cooking them in a microwave. (sometimes i need an egg…stat!)

Erin @ UntilYouTri May 5, 2011 at 7:09 am

Oh my goodness! I eat egg sandwiches with Jelly, too!!! My husband thought I was a weirdo until I forced him to try it, now he's a convert!!:)

Aww, that sucks that Billy is so busy. Right now I am the busier one because I'm in grad school AND training for a half ironman. My poor husband is very good to me to put up with me being stressed and tired all the time!!

Lately I've been an oatmeal addict, and sometimes in addition to having it for breakfast I make a small serving in the afternoon. It always make me feel nice and full!

My husband is finishing his PhD and will graduate in December. His PhD adviser told my husband to put a picture of himself on the refrigerator so that I won't forget what he looks like since I won't be seeing him very often for the next 8 months. Depressing, but it gives me lots of time to nap!

My hubby is definitely the busier one. The army owns him right now, so his time is rarely his own.

I usually only eat my eggs fried with a super well-cooked yolk, but I've started venturing into other ways of cooking them and I am seriously wanting to try a frittata.

Right now I am the busier one because of marathon training but typically we are about the same.
I used to love fried egg and jam sandiwchs, my Mom made me them all the time! I just started eating them again :) Favorite was to eat eggs for sure!
I have been eating apples and peanut butter as my afternoon snack lately.

Mallory May 5, 2011 at 7:21 am

Ugh I hate stains on clothes!! That sucks that you lost your favorite part of your food. I think my spouse and I are both pretty busy… but busy for different reasons. After work I usually go to the gym. That being said, I do have a part-time job as well so work for me is about 50 hours per week, around 55-60 for my spouse but I also workout so I think it evens out pretty much.

I think Dean and I are both equally busy. I supply teach, but I also teach spin and have another part-time job. Dean teaches phys ed full time but has to bring home work and do a lot of lesson planning!

I don't eat eggs so I can't really tell you how I like them!

I love sprinting to Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous by Good Charlotte and I love climbing to They Don't Really Care About Us by MJ :) Fire by Raghav and Dog Days are Over by Florence and the Machine are awesome too!

My fave after work snack has to be PB and sliced banana on toast. I don't think I can ever get sick of it!

My boyfriend and I are both super busy and work really opposite schedules. We usually see each other on Sundays at church (sometimes after!) and one other day during the week. Not going to lie- as an independent girl I kind of like it.

I am obsessed with the song My Body by Young The Giant. Download it stat!

Gosh, now I know how the (dare I say) "less busy" person in a relationship is…and now I feel bad. I have been spending the majority of my free time lately studying for my PT certification over quality time with the hubby. Maybe tonight he deserves some special attention, thanks for the heads up!

Everytime I see you post a froyo cup I weep a little :( We don't have anything like that in Winnipeg, even though we are a huge city! So, so sad. I had to go alllll the way to New Mexico for my first froyo experience! Haha :)

We are both very busy, but my bf is probably the busier of the 2 because he races 4 nights a week May-September whereas I usually only race 1-2…so he spends every day NOT racing, working on the car. We also live 350 miles apart, so being crazy busy is a good thing :)

Eggs – scrambled on toast with herb and garlic cream cheese and havarti! Yummmm

Lindie May 5, 2011 at 8:36 am

Oh my, Billy's froached eggs look and sound divine!! I can't wait to try them! I love eggs! I loved scrambled with lots of cheese, I love omelets, hard boiled, and fried! I love eggs really any way! One of my favorites is a sliced hard boiled egg on bread with mayo then a slice of harvarti cheese broiled until the cheese is bubbly! Then to top it off, add tobasco and salt and pepper! Sounds crazy, but so good!

I would say my husband and I are equally busy. He is at work all day while I am a stay at home mom with an 18 month old daughter that is WILD and a puppy in training!

My favorite snack these days is chips or crackers with hummus! Yummy!!

1-My boyfriend is the busy one and we're long distance so it's horrid.

1 – My boyfriend and I work in the same line of work so we both are super busy right now. And we are long distance which makes it even worse…however, we are pretty much on the same schedule – Late late nights at work so that helps with being able to talk to each other when we can.

2 – afternoon snack – usually something containing peanut butter and some sort of fruit…

Work-wise my husband is busier but I was pretty busy when I was training for my marathon. But, now that training is over, I'm back to being the less busy of the 2 :-)

I have no significant other so it's safe to say I am busiest ;) And I am single because I was sick of being the busiest one, aka I work two jobs and he works none. It wasn't working for me :)

I love dippy eggs, so I will have to try them with jam now. Usually I fry them up and make a ton of toast because I need a bite of toast with every bite of egg.

Spin list.. I wish I could take your class because you keep it loaded with upbeat songs! I'm loving that I see Lil Wayne made an appearance on your list, he's my favorite rapper :) There is nothing I hate more than being at spin class and being told to sprint to something like Dave Matthews band. Um, no.. that makes me want to sleep, NOT sprint.

DEM May 5, 2011 at 11:23 am

I always get 2 eggs over easy with toast and jam, so I can make egg and jam sandwiches too – just sometimes I get a little weirder and put ketchup on the egg and a little bacon to boot…but yes runny yoke is the best, I don't mind when they break, because you can just sop it up with the toast and feel like a kid again "playing with your food"

Eggs and jam is THE JAM! I consider egg a staple, sort of like bread where anything goes. Sometimes I'll even put syrup on my eggs because it reminds me of my younger years when I would drown my choc chip pancake stack in syrup and the my eggs would drown in it as well.

You have such great support around you Janae–glad your friends can step in and "pinch hit" when life gets the better of Billy.

I can TOTALLY relate. Spencer is in season now, which means lots of lonely nights. I never can schedule "couple things" on weekends because he has games or is recruiting. :P

But, I'm thankful he has a job and loves it. Billy's hard work (and yours too) are goin to pay off in a few years!!!

I am definitely the busier one in our relationship. I teach full time, coach year round, personal train in the mornings before school (that's right, 5:55 a.m. baby), and teach Zumba 5-7 times per week. It's insane!

Lately I've been frying them up in a skillet (egg still half runny), but I really love poached eggs. I think I'm going to try your froached egg today!

After school snack is usually oatmeal if it's cold or a toast/wrap with egg and hotslaw (it's a secret family recipe – amazing – you would love because it is ketchup based). Sometimes I'll just do a ginormous protein shake.

I love anything by Daddy Yankee (it's perfect for Zumba), and lately I'm loving On the Floor by J-Lo.

I have you to blame for my fro-yo addiction. I'm going to Colorado in June and I'm thinking of making a side-trip to Utah so I can check out the awesomeness that is yogurtland.

I honestly don't really care for eggs. I hate the yolk! Although I do love scrambled eggs, and I've recently gotten to where I like the yolk if it is hard boiled. Usually I just eat the egg whites.
